Free trial bottles of this great discovery at Hill & McCoach'sdrug store. Large bottles 50c and $1 00 SOME POTENT FACTS 1* That the Reader Will Do Well to Carefully Ponder Over. It was kept a secret for years in a good old Quaker family. The neighbors all knew about it, and many a time had reason to be thank ful for its existence. Il? fame spread and strangers who heard about it wrote for information concerning it, sometimes tried its virtues and sometimes put off a trial for a more convenient time. To tell how it was dragged from an obscure coun try village and placed before the general public would be interesting reading, but lack of space compels us to withhold the particulars." It is sufficient to know that over a year ago it had gone to every city and town in the north, unpreten-| tious aud unassuming. It said: "I can do certain things; investigate my claims; try me if you have back ache, and you will not be disap pointed." The above is a fragment from the history of Doan's Kidney Pills, a preparation which came to Sisters ville as well as to Martin's Ferry to stay. One of Martin's Ferry's representative citizens who helped to push the work along is Mr. A. P. Dinsmore. That gentle man says: Mr. A. P. Dinsmore, general gro cer' corner Main street and Lincoln avenue, says: "I have been troubled for a long time with my kidneys, but the last year has been much worse, and at times it was positively painful for me to get around and do my every day work in the shop. I had a constant, dull, aching pain across my loins that felt as though I had been pounded all over. There was also a heavy bearing down pain through the bladder. I did not rest well at night, and in the morning when I would get up I felt tired and languid; even more so when I went to bed. I had tried different remedies without success, until I got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills at a drug store in Bridgeport. They helped me right away, and in a very short time all the trouble dis appeared, and I have not had it since. My wife used Doan's Kid ney Pills also, being troubled al most as much as I was, and she ob tained the same result. Perfect re lief and exemption from pain. I can honestly recommend Doan's Kidney Pills as the best remedy I ever met with." Just such emphatic endorsement can be had right here ic Sisters ville. Drop into the drug store of C. J- Biggs and ask what his cus tomers report. Doan's Kindev Pills for sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Mailed by Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N. Y., sole agents for the United States.
